Zusammenfassung: Violence against women is one of the main social problems worldwide. The present article states that perceptions of violence are historically and socially constructed, and the legal status of an act of violent behaviour lies therefore in the social response to this specific behaviour. Thus, marital rape and its recognition are discussed as a new boundary mark because of greater social sensitivity on violence. From an intercultural social work perspective, it is highly relevant to learn more about perceptions of social problems in general and about perceptions of different kinds of violence in particular, to identify potential barriers with the aim to plan adequate interventions. The article presents findings from expert interviews related to the perception and the intervention structure contextualised by the discourse on marital rape in India. It concludes six main implications for intercultural social work, such as (1) support for empathy, (2) strengthening couple interaction, (3) inclusion of peer-educators, (4) strengthening women‘s negotiating competence, and (5) sensitization work. The main finding (6) states that in all of these settings, the role of the family system should not be underestimated, and whenever possible couple counseling should be considered. Viewed against the background of the highly individualised Swiss society, this is a finding, which needs to be taken into careful account in Swiss intercultural social work.
